National Racing Stars of the Weekend: Nov 4/5

@MNmotorsport

Our team of reporters pick their stand-out performers from last weekend’s national race meetings.

Brands Hatch BARC: Andrew Jordan, by Piotr Magdziarz 

All eyes were on Andrew Jordan (pictured above by Gary Hawkins) who made his Pickup Truck racing debut during the season finale at Brand Hatch.

The 2013 British Touring Car champion didn’t put a wheel wrong all weekend and was immediately on the pace from the start, claiming second place in race one after fighting his way through from the back, as well as an impressive defensive performance, despite a misfire, to win race two.

It was more than obvious that the BTCC regular and sometime World Rallycross Championship racer enjoyed his one-off outing in club racing.

“The cars look a bit agricultural but when you actually drive them, they handle much better than you would expect,” said Jordan.

Silverstone Walter Hayes Trophy: Oliver White, by Stefan Mackley

Oliver White leads Fisher (81) and Moyers (25) in Walter Hayes Trophy final. Pic Steve Jones.

Oliver White looked like he would finally take his first Walter Hayes Trophy win having already claimed two runner-up spots in the past five years.

The Medina Sport JL17 driver hit peak form at the right moment, finishing third in heat six and second in semi final one after charging through from seventh on the grid.

And up until the penultimate lap of the final he had been in the right place at the right time, leading before contact with first Josh Fisher, then James Raven and finally Josh Smith ended his race.

He said: “I understand why he [Fisher] did what he did because it’s the final of the Hayes. It’s just so disappointing.”
